Frightening films for all at Vue Redditch this Halloween

GET ready for the most frightening time of year, with a selection of scares on the big screen available for everyone at Vue this Halloween.

From horror film blockbusters to classic Halloween favourites, there’s something to feed the appetite of all ages, tastes and fear factors – and it’s a good thing, as according to experts, getting lost in a scary movie could be good for you.

Vue has uncovered some interesting insight into the world of horror film.

Ian Wallace, Psychologist and Dream Expert, was asked about the benefits of watching a horror film on the big screen and he has said: “The basic enjoyment of horror movies comes from the triggering of powerful emotions within ourselves, but safely dealt with in a comfortable and secure environment such as the cinema.

“The experience of viewing a horror movie unconsciously develops and tunes our emotions.

“Even though we’re extremely unlikely to encounter the same types of scenes we see in these movies, we can use our emotional reactions from the experience to deal with challenging issues in our day-to-day lives.

“From a symbolic perspective, a horror movie represents the opportunity to transform our personal life stories by becoming more aware of the positive and healthy emotional influences in our lives.”

New thrill-seekers will be eagerly awaiting a number of brand new horror movies on Halloween weekend where film-goers can catch the story of a young student harbouring a dangerous secret in Antlers, as well as Edgar Wright’s latest directorial feat in psychological horror Last Night in Soho.

True scary film buffs and budding fans alike will be pleased to see the return of three classic scary movies to the big screen, with Blade, The Exorcist and all-time great, The Silence of the Lambs all showing at Vue over Halloween.

Halloween fanatics can also take their pick between spooky favourites like Hocus Pocus and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the return of Uncle Fester and the gang in The Addams Family 2 and the arrival of Richard O’Brien’s legendary rock ‘n’ roll musical live on the big screen in The Rocky Horror Show Live 2021, in Vue’s most varied Halloween line-up ever.

Eduardo Leal, Head of Screen Content at Vue Entertainment, said: “This Halloween, we’re thrilled to be able to put on a raft of new and classic films for our scary and spooky film-lovers.

“From family-friendly comedy horrors, to psychological thrillers, we know how gripping scary films can be and how easy it is to get lost in them – and it’s the perfect time to celebrate them.”
